5 myths about entrepreneurship and business pupils believe in

Elżbieta Szczepaniak

What happens when you start discussing business with pupils? You will see that they all have opinions. Where do they come from if they have never run their own business? Hopefully from reliable business sources like family businesses, but unfortunately mostly either from what they saw on TV/internet or they heard from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from somebody (hopefully) really running a business. This is how common fallacies are created. The aim of this presentation is to discuss 5 most common misconceptions about business that young people believe in and that school should correct.

  • Elżbieta Szczepaniak. Entrepreneur, simulation games designer and facilitator, lecturer. Entrepreneurship is her middle name – she feels incomplete when there are no projects, initiatives, challenges coming. Co-founder of Revas – start-up creating Business Simulation Games that allow (young) people experience business and boost entrepreneurial skills by running virtual companies. CEO of Revas Entrepreneurship Foundation that organizes Entrepreneurship Academy for secondary school teachers and School Managerial Championships. Ela was ranked in the 50. most creative people in business in Poland 2018 ranking by marketing magazine and her start-up was a winner of e.g. Polish Smart Growth Award in the Education category.

How can Erasmus+ support VET schools?

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. Set to last until 2027, Erasmus+ doesn't just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations. It helps people of all ages and backgrounds develop and share knowledge and experience, it enhances skills and intercultural awareness and helps people become engaged citizens. The session will focus on:

- the opportunities for Vocational Education and Training teachers and their institutions within Erasmus+,

- effects and results achieved so far in the VET sector,

- synergy between eTwinning and Erasmus+,

- the assumptions of the anticipated programme for the years 2020-27.

 Let’s crowdfund! Shall we?  

Agnieszka Płoska, Poland  

It is much easier to realize your project once you are supported by a crowd: it stimulates, motivates to work, gives you constant feedback and supports the steps you take. The time is now – instead of an individual deciding on a success of your educational innovative idea, ask a crowd, motivate them to support you financially and make your dreams come true. It is time to engage hundreds of people around you. They are there, you just need to reach them. The financial revolution for your educational projects is here. Learn the steps to do a successful campaign. Let’s crowdfund, shall we?  

  • Agnieszka Płoska. Crowdfunding campaign’s mentor, an inspirer and an optimist. She’s been interested in alternative financing since 2009, and in 2014 she discovered her path – managing crowdfunding campaigns. She follows “A goal is a dream with a deadline.”(Napoleon Hill) motto which motivates her to get projects done. She has advised around 150 projects initiators and has implemented campaigns that reached a total over PLN 100,000 a year. She is an author of a book “A woman from the crowd. How to run a crowdfunding campaign in 4 steps.” Learn more:
